London, December 8, 2006 – British Royal Charles has warned that the people are over eating the resources of the Earth which must be checked since our grandchildren shall have to pay the heavy price. He launched his ‘green revolution’ on Wednesday with a stark warning that we are all ‘living on borrowed time’ if we don’t stop eating up the world’s resources.
In a forthright speech in front of leading figures, including PM Tony Blair, he said: “We are consuming the resources of our planet at such a rate that we are, in effect, living off credit and living on borrowed time.
“It is our children and grandchildren who will have to pay off this debt and we owe it to them and ourselves to do something about it before it is too late.”
Charles launched his Costing The Earth — The Accounting For Sustainability project at a forum at St James Palace attended by politicians and business and faith leaders.
Former Democratic US presidential candidate Al Gore praised Charles’s green initiative in a video message to the forum.
He said it may be “one of the most important initiatives”and stressed: “We need to continue the effort to solve the climate crisis.”
The heir to the throne is determined to reduce his carbon footprint on the world. He encourages his staff to make trips around the capital on bicycle instead of taking cars or cabs.
Actor Stephen Fry and comedian Al Murray have teamed up to make a film in support of Charles. Fry, a close friend of Charles, plays Planet Earth while Murray, otherwise known as the Pub Landlord, stars as the Moon in the appeal.
Charles is set to label all his Duchy Originals range with details of greenhouse gases made during their production.
